Friends Don’t Let Friends Shop Chains

United States, Mississippi, Flowood – 05-06-2019 ( —




In this always Internet-connected society, it’s easy to jump on the mobile phone and order whatever is needed, but that convenience comes at a cost to the community you reside in. If you don’t shop locally, towns don’t get the much-needed tax revenue that supports the fire department, police, sanitation department, and other local services. The shopping area suffers when ignored by its citizens, often becoming a forgotten and abandoned part of a neighborhood.

When you have shopping to do, it’s tempting to take the easy route and head down to the mall – or easier still, just browse Amazon. Major chain stores and Internet retailers offer a huge selection, plus the convenience of one-stop shopping. On top of that, their prices often beat the local stores.
But keeping your dollars in your hometown has other advantages that are just as important as saving a few bucks, even if they’re not immediately obvious.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
